Reading Music Rhythm Training TUTORIAL
Learn to read, play, and write rhythms
In my 30 years of experience as a music teacher I have found that more people struggle with reading rhythm than reading pitch.
Many courses only teach the letter names of the notes. Knowing the letter names of the notes is useless information if you don’t know how long each note should be played for.
Isolating rhythm from pitch lets you focus your attention on mastering rhythm which is the most fundamental element of music. Once you have a solid foundation in rhythm, learning the other elements of music will be much easier and quicker.
